I didn’t know what to expect coming into this, but the minute I heard some drums kick in, I knew I was in for the ride. You see, I really enjoyed their debut LP, it had a really interesting sound, and I was amazed at how much energy it brought even without drums. Now, with this record, all I have to say for the moment is: THIS is how you change your sound. I think Girlpool succeded at adding drums to their formula, and neither the songwriting nor the production or the performance of the music suffer from the change. I still prefer their debut, but let’s see if this grows on me. 7.5/10.
